Re: Brew Dog Cybernaut Mash at 0 degrees C?!

I go back on my "cold mash" explanation. If Brewdog were playing with "cold mashing" I think we'd have heard about it? I cannot find anything that would link "Cybernaut" with cold mashing. So I now think it is a typo! My guess is some sort of template is used to create these recipe sheets, so temper...

Re: Dark Ale

… Not all Belgian yeasts came from Scotland, but specifically Duvel uses a strain (formerly two) that originated in a bottle from Mcewans , harvested by the great brewing scientist Jean De Clerck between the wars. … Further to my suggestion that Belgium yeasts came from Scotland: I dug this up from...

Re: Brew Dog Cybernaut Mash at 0 degrees C?!

If you want to catch up with "cold mashing" it's discussed from here onwards: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=81739&start=15#p843589.

The thread is all "low alcohol" brewing, but it covers the "cold mashing" stuff quite extensively.

Re: Brew Dog Cybernaut Mash at 0 degrees C?!

I've just looked this one up. It really does mean 0C 'cos it also has 32F alongside. So it really, really, is dodgy! Insufficient detail too perform a "cold extraction" and the details they do give would be incorrect. And - you'll probably burnout your boiler's element attempting it! I'd roughly est...

Re: Brew Dog Cybernaut Mash at 0 degrees C?!

Hi fellow brewsters :D I’ve been looking at trying a Cybernaut clone but on inspection of the DIY recipe released by BrewDog, the mash temperature is listed as 0 degrees C for 15 minutes!!!!!!! Anyone out there got any info on this ludicrous mash schedule?? :shock: "Cold Extraction" (or "mashing" i...

… are the second hand ones really significantly cheaper?
Not any more they're not! I think the first Cornys I bought were about £20 eight years ago. The second-hand ones will run out - there only seems to be one design left now (but seemingly plenty of 'em).

Re: Beer Engine With A Cornelius

I do not follow what "Trefoyl" means by "can’t hold back high pressure all at once" though? (Can you enlighten me please)? I let the pressure out of the keg by lifting the safety valve before connecting, otherwise beer will rush up into the gas hose. When that happens the excess gas pressure dramat...

Re: Beer Engine With A Cornelius

… I would strongly suggest testing your own, specific corny kegs to check they seal 'reliably' at the pressure you wish. … Dead right! Corny kegs can be a proper pain sealing at low pressures. I've got 15 a the things, this is what I did to get them all working at (very) low pressures. (I'm not gua...

Re: Beer Engine With A Cornelius

The reg in the link ships to the UK. Is that the one to have ideally? I think your question is targeted at "Trefoyl"? But the one I linked (UK supplier) is only £12.50 and "variable" (50-150mbar). The fixed "37mbar" ones are okay for some, but some may prefer slightly more CO2 condition. It is why ...

Re: Beer Engine With A Cornelius

… No, the regulator bleeds excess pressure. It just can’t hold back high pressure all at once. This hi-lights a little annoyance with propane regulators in the UK: Regulators are either of a "relieving" design (most are), or "non-relieving". "Trefoyl" obviously has a "relieving" regulator in that i...

Re: Beer Engine With A Cornelius

You've surely got my take on it: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwzEv5tRM-5EQUhZbDNPdmV1bWc It's a big read, so perhaps if you have seen it you've not got to the end of it? It discusses handpumps towards the end. I can get a bit rude about "breathers"! They are Pub tools; great for Pubs but naff ...

Re: Dark Ale

… Wee Heavy is one of those beers that huge amounts of nonsense gets written about, particularly by authors overseas. In Scotland it historically only refers to a single beer, Fowler's Twelve Guineas . … Okay, I'll accept that historically it's nonsense, but in recent times it has come to mean "som...

^^^ Interesting stuff. Thanks for that. On Belgium yeasts: Appreciate the clarification.
